Outraged in Seattle

It looks like we're getting into the seafood high season a little early this year. This has been a very strong week for sales. It's been pretty crazy around here. Yesterday we were all on fire; 5 lines holding, a dozen voice mails, short 5,000 lbs of shrimp, trying to tack down the trucker with the missing halibut, you get the picture.

Then my manager (not Simon, the other one, the Duck) calls up from his business trip in SoCal and wants to chat. "How ya doin' buddy? Just ran into Heather Locklear, she said our fish looks great! my picture taken in front of the Hollywood sign...Universal Studios.....going to the beach...Beverly Hills...Will Smith shops at this store....Blah Blah Blah.......

How does one politely one's manager that he is about to get his teeth kicked in?

I guess I should expect as much from a man with a "Recreational Science" degree from ShouldaWouldaCoulda U. Asi es el Pescado.
